Every big guy I have ever seen in my gym or on a log on a forum is insanely strong. Repping 315 bench, 500lb+ deadlift, overhead pressing 200lb etc. So should we all be following proven, structured, periodized training programs that have strength as the top priority? (531, texas method, sheiko, smolov jr etc) I've seen small guys hit 225 on the bench for a triple or deadlift 405 for double. But pretty much every time I see someone rep out 315 for 5+reps, they are probably the biggest guy in the gym at that time. Currently torn between following a proper program with percentages and just going in and doing push pull and progressing when I hit rep goals. P.S None of this applies to those who blast 3g+ anabolics +hgh & slin. They seem to do very well on the phil heath fluff and pump style workouts lol.
